pmap_page_exists_quick -- determine if a page exists in a physical map
pmap_page_exists_quick(pmap_t pmap, vm_page_t m);
The pmap_page_exists_quick() function is used to quickly determine if the
page m exists in the physical map pmap. It is typically called from the
VM paging code.
The pmap_page_exists_quick() returns TRUE only if the PV entry for the
physical map pmap is one of the first 16 PVs linked from the page m.
The PV count used above may be changed upwards or downwards in future; it
is only necessary that TRUE be returned for a small subset of pmaps for
proper page aging.
